World Series of Poker schedule confirmed
The schedule for the 44th World Series of Poker has been officially announced.
The series will run from 29 May - 15 July 2013 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
A total of 62 events are scheduled this time round, one more than last year, including the first ever High Rollers bracelet event from 26-28 June.
A $1,500 event on the opening weekend will award $1m to the winner, while the showpiece Main Event begins on 6 July.
Last year a total of 74,766 entries were recorded for bracelet events, the second highest total ever and only 1% off the all-time mark.
“Bring your bankroll, whatever it is, and come have the time of your life,” said WSOP Tournament Director Jack Effel.
“We think this is the most diverse schedule we’ve ever had and we’ll be ready for an all-time turn-out at the 44th annual WSOP.”
